Welcome to my website!
I realize there are many things competing for your attention, so I’m honored you stopped by.
Although this is technically an “author website,” this website is about much more than Lora Young, the author. It’s a reflection of me—Lora Young, the person.
If you’re interested in finding my books, go directly to the Books page.
If you’re interested in my basic bio, go to the About page.
If you’d like to get to know me, and allow me to get to know you, go to the blog page. I post about whatever is on my mind. ((Isn’t that what a blog is supposed to be? A web log?) However, the posts basically fall into a few main categories:
Historical Tidbits – This is where I write about some of the things I’ve had to research in the course of writing my historical mysteries and western adventures. Much of this research never makes it into a book, but it’s sooooo interesting. (Actually, some of this is information I got to by clicking this link and that. They have nothing to do with my stories.) Here’s the link to these posts.
Of Books and Writing – I don’t tend to write much about writing, but when I do, it’ll wind up here.
The Reluctant Gardener – These are posts about our family garden. My middle son, his wife, my daughter, her husband, my husband, and I are learning to garden and homestead on our eleven acres. For “livestock,” we have chickens and two aging cats. Our main focus is the garden—learning when to plant, what to plant, and how to plant. As the post category suggests, none of this was my idea, but I’m doing my best. You can read about our exploits here.
Abdicating the Throne – I’ve been a follower of Jesus since I was nine years old. I’m now a woman of generous years, but I still find myself needing to climb off the throne and invite my Saviour and Lord to sit there. These are my musings about where God has convicted me and where I see Him convicting His people. Many of these posts include what I’m learning as I delve into the Jewish roots of my faith.
I hope you’ll take a moment to peruse my offerings. I pray you’ll be blessed and invite you to comment. That’s where the fun really is: Getting to know you!
